Still Shaking!

I just had the most unbelievable experience at the Sullivan’s house.  Karen and I were getting ready to go to pilates and she asked me to run up to her son Roger’s bedroom to grab her gym bag while she answered the phone.  When I got in there Beefeater was on the bed, enjoying a lil’ nap in the sun, as dogs do.  I took the bag and as I passed the bed I may just have slightly touched the dog with the corner of the bag.  I could hear Beefeater start to growl behind me and omg!  He attacked me!

This is a vicious, ferocious animal.

This is a vicious, ferocious animal.

I have never been so scared in my whole life!  I ran from the room and shut the door behind me.  Karen ran upstairs and we could hear the dog flinging himself against the door.  I showed her the selfie I just happened to be taking at the moment he attacked and she was truly shocked.  Beefeater always seemed to be such a pleasant dog.  Now he seems like a monster.

Obviously we cancelled our pilates and Karen called Mitch to come home and a vet to come sedate the dog.  I don’t like the idea of living next door to such a vicious animal, especially with three lil’ angles running around my yard and now the Wozinskis on the other side of us have children as well.  Poor Karen has some thinking to do!

Since pilates was off I came home and put on my snuggly fall clothes and had a couple of glasses of wine before the children got home.

What a beautiful fall day!

What a beautiful fall day!

    That is terrible what that nasty, viscous dog did while you were innocently getting the bag and helping your dear, close friend Karen! I used to think Beefeater was a nice dog, but since he returned from being missing, I’m not so sure. Maybe that foreign family who had him trapped in their garage mistreated him? (I’ve heard that they eat dogs. Yes, EAT them! How barbaric. Someone should call ICE and have them deported. They’re obviously unclean, giving your children lice. They are a danger to public health!). Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was just bad training or lack of training on Karens behalf. She doesn’t sound too responsible sometimes, what with negligently losing her dog and then being so odd with you.

    I am so glad you happened to be taking a photo just at that exact moment! That was so incredibly fortunate. You might need it as proof in case things need to be taken further if Karen doesn’t make the right decision.

    Well, there is no way I would be giving her those mistakenly-monogrammed K pyjamas now. At least not until she does the right thing about that dangerous dog. I mean, if Beefeater reacted like that to you without the slightest provocation, who knows what he would have done to someone else? Everyone knows you are so sweet and loving and wouldn’t hurt a fly, let alone a Beefeater! lol
    After all, you were the one who recused him from that foreign family! That dog should be greatful. As for the slight bump, I’m sure it was hardly anything, certainly nothing to warrant that reaction from him. Besides, everyone knows that dogs are used to a bit of a nudge or hit with a newspaper every now and then, just as a bit of encouragement when they won’t move or do the right thing or pose the way you want for a photo.

    Wow, these new pills I mentioned really do help me whiz through the day! I took just a wee bit more than recommended, just to help me get more important things done, like shopping for new maternity clothes. My hubby complained about how much I bought, but I know he really loves it and is happy I buy nice clothes to look good for him. It’s even more important now that I’m starting to show. No sweatpants for me! I want to keep taking pride in my appearance, so I bought a few pairs if these new Lululemon pants. Hubby said he thought they looked the same as sweatpants! But then I realised he was just joking. Obviously he could tell the difference because my butt looks really good in them. He has such a rye cents of humour!

    I think you should tell the neighbourhood about what happened. It’s your duty as a highly respected member of the community to warn people about that dog. Maybe you should get some of them to write to city hall about it. Make sure that everyone you speak to understands that you are still traumatized by the attack and can’t speak about it, so they know not to mention your name and city hall don’t hound you with questions. It must have been so harrowing and you don’t want them to cause you flashbacks. I think compensation should be paid for your pain and suffering. You could have been killed, or scarred. They should also pay so you can get therapy if you need it to help get over the shock. Well, retail therapy anyway!! lol. I think a few new outfits could help take your mind off it.

    Anyway, this was just a quick, short note like usual to let you know that we are all SO. BLESSED. that you are safe.

      I am still absolutely shocked that Beefeater attacked me like that! I have never done one thing to that dog except save him heroically twice, and this is the thanks I get.

      I have already announced what happened on twitter, Facebook and instagram and I have called everyone in book club, garden club, pilates and spin class and gone door to door on my street to mention it. I am not a gossip at all, and it pains me to have to name names, but this is a public safety issue! I could never forgive myself if he attacks someone else.

      Do you think I should put something about it on pinterest too?

      I’ll bet you look really adorable in your lululemon maternity wear. They are super adorable and do not look like sweats at all. LOL! Men, am I right? If you are looking for good pregnancy and nursing bras a few of my friends have recommended coobies to me and they are super cute and brightly colored. You have to buy them from vending machines at car washes and convenience stores but they are otherwise totally environmentally friendly and leave almost no carbon footprint! Highly recommended!

      Thanks for your support.

        Thank you for the bra recommendation. I googled them but at first all I got was weird stuff about animals! Cats and donkeys for some reason?
        Anyway, they look like they offer super support! I found their official Spokes Model and she was offering a coupon code! Yay! But when I tried to use it, it didn’t work any more. How odd. Anyway, it’s wonderful to see a company using a real woman’s body, without any photoshop. At first I thought it was enhanced, but then I saw her knees and knew it was original.

        I will have to contact that Spokes Model to find out about the discount code. I’m sure she will be super friendly and helpful. She looks SO nice!
        Thanks again.

        P.S. I think a Pinterest Board is a great idea. I created one with ideas for sexy photos to take with my hubby and it was a bit riskay! I thought I set it to ‘private’ status but wouldn’t you know it, I accidentally left the privacy setting open for everyone to see what I was planning. Oops! So silly of me! Hee hee. Thank goodness there weren’t any actual photos of me in there; all the yummy mummy’s still talk about when I accidentally did that once before. Or it might have been twice? Anyway, I know they still gossip about it because they were just jeluz of how hot I looked. They could learn something from you about not being a gossip girl and having discrecession.

    That spokesmodel really is so friendly looking. You are lucky to get the discount code. Maybe you could get some sexy pictures of yourself in the bras to share with your hubby.

    That vicious dog should be put down! He could get into your yard and hurt or even kill your kids. And that is not OK.

    We just bought an adorable little malti-dachsi-poo puppy at the pet store at the mall! We had to re-home our 12-year-old shih tzu because the kids suddenly developed allergies to her. It broke our hearts, but the children come first.

      I could not agree more. Merlin has always been very close to Beefeater and it absolutely broke my heart when I had to tell him that he could no longer play with his friend. I wonder if the family who had Beefeater in their garage gave him something to fatten him up that caused brain damage? Karen is very close to that dog and was very upset, so I have no idea what she will do. She disappeared with the dog right after the incident. I was cleaning Starling’s lil’ telescope next to the window and I just happened to see her and Mitch drive away with Beefeater sitting in the back seat. I assumed they were going to the vet but they never came back and i think I may have seen suitcases in the back of their van. The entire situation is very upsetting.
